Qumie was very active all her life, she owned and operated the Red Level Cafe for years, while also driving a school bus for the Covington County School System; possibly she was the first female county school bus driver. Always seeking ways to serve others, it was known that she was usually the first to respond to a death or any type of tragedy in the community, with one of her homemade red velvet cakes in hand. She and her school classmate, Mrs. Nell Bullock spearheaded the water system being developed into the Pigeon Creek community; she and her daughter, Rene' were the duo that made the asphalt paving be done for Boykin Road. In the late 1950's the Taylors and some of the other neighboring families established the Vera Cruz Methodist Church by relocating a church building from another area onto the grounds that held the Vera Cruz Cemetery that is now approximately 150 years of age. The Taylors were long time Stewarts of the Vera Cruz Methodist Church that remained open until recent years. Of all her church and community activities, Qumie's God and family were always forefront in her life. She left a lasting legacy of love for all who knew her.
